Ataque a la libertad religiosa

El Presidente Obama acaba de lanzar un ataque directo y sin precedentes a la libertad religiosa en nuestro país. El Departamento de Salud y Servicios Humanos, basándose en la ley de reforma de salud del presidente, el llamado “Obamacare”, emitió hace unas semanas una directriz requiriendo que instituciones afiliadas a la Iglesia Católica, tales como universidades y hospitales, ofrezcan, como parte de la cobertura médica que brindan a sus empleados, acceso a contraceptivos, incluyendo algunos que son abortivos como la “píldora del día después”, así como servicios de esterilización. El problema aquí, por supuesto, es que la Iglesia Católica se opone moralmente al uso de anticonceptivos y a la esterilización, por lo que el mandato federal obligaría a determinadas instituciones católicas a violar los principios de su fe.

Obama’s broken promises to young Americans

Four years ago, the youthful Obama campaign offered young Americans the promise of a hopeful future. But today, the Obama presidency has little to offer the country’s newest crop of first-time voters.

 President Obama’s policies have not only made life undeniably harder for young Americans in the short term, but those policies will also unfairly burden their lives in the long term.

Poll: Sandoval’s approval rating robust, Obama looks vulnerable in Nevada and state lawmakers not held in high esteem

Gov. Brian Sandoval’s approval ratings have substantially increased as have Nevadans views of the incrementally improving economy, but voters still have a very negative view of the Legislature and are ambivalent about President Obama…

Sandoval’s approval ratings (63-25) are well up from the last time POS measured him in September – (50-33) – and surely among the more robust in the country.

…Las observaciones del periodista Dana Milbank y repetidas por Jim Messina demuestran ignorancia sobre la comunidad hispana – hecho compartido por muchos otros en los pasillos del poder.  Para ellos, los hispanos son un grupo monolítico que es incapaz de tener pensamientos independientes – la diversidad es ensalzada siempre y cuando no sea de opiniones…

Same Old Rhetoric From Democrats

TODAY:

Politico: GOP piles on Harry Reid for Rubio comment: The RNC and a bevy of conservative Hispanic groups are pouncing on Harry Reid’s comment to me in today’s story on the Marco Rubio-White House skirmish over the stalled nomination of Mari Carmen Aponte as ambassador to El Salvador… “Only a day after Jim Messina’s insensitive chimichanga comment, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid makes an inflammatory remark regarding one of the Republican’s rising stars Senator Marco Rubio from Florida,” RNC spokeswoman Alexandra Franceschi told Univision. “By implying that Senator Rubio represents ‘Hispanic issues,’ Senator Reid is creating an unnecessary separation between the Hispanic community and the general population. Hispanics in the United States care about the same issues as everyone else such as job creation, the economy, education, and healthcare.”

Yahoo News: Barack Obama Moves from Contraception Pan into ‘Chimichanga’ Fire: ”@Messina2012 clearly doesn’t understand the diversity of Hispanic community,” Tweeted Alexandra Franceschi, the RNC’s press secretary for Latino press. “Hispanics deserve an apology for his inflammatory comment.” The RNC’s Latino Twitter account also re-tweeted the comment of an irritated user who said: “[N]ot to try and insult your intelligence or anything, but not all Hispanics are about chimichangas.”

FLASHBACK:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid: “I don’t know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican, okay? Do I need to say more?”
